The main courses of action that we take in our commitment to sustainability are:

    1. Minimization of material consumption and waste generation: We will use temporary structures that do not involve consumption of raw materials and do not generate disposable debris. In addition, we will favor bulk dispensing food and beverage avoiding the generation of leftovers.
    2. Recycling and separate collection of generated waste.
    3. Reducing CO2 emissions, measurement and compensation of the carbon footprint caused by the electricity consumption and the mobility of individuals attending the event.
    4. Catering kilometer zero, which offers fresh, seasonal products that are produced near Barcelona, promoting and publicizing to the attendees the products of the area.
